Wardrobe Necessities for Stylish Pregnant Women

Just because you are pregnant it doesn’t mean you have to say “no” to style, as there is a lot of great maternity clothing out there that is both functional and fashionable. Gone are the days of feeling and looking frumpy and uncomfortable during your pregnancy as there are great styles for every need. Whether you are going out for a night on the town, having a picnic with friends or getting some exercise at the gym, there are plenty of beautiful and useful maternity clothes to choose from.

The Intimates

Just like any other time, you want your maternity underwear to fit properly, look nice and be super comfortable. These days, you can find everything you need for under-the-clothes comfort plus a variety of colour and style choices. Perhaps the most important is the maternity bra, a garment that will need to be replaced often as you progress through your pregnancy. The right support will ensure you have no soreness when your breasts are heavier, and will also be useful following pregnancy while you are still breastfeeding. A comfortable undershirt is also useful if you find yourself pregnant in the cooler months, and are super easy to buy in bulk from stores, such as Bonds, online.


Although it is normal to gain as much as 13 kilos during pregnancy, it is still important to exercise regularly in order to retain and improve flexibility, cardiovascular strength as well as muscular strength. Many pregnant women choose to continue their exercise regimes throughout their pregnancy, and so many great styles of activewear have been developed. Whether you are jogging, cycling or practicing yoga, there is a style that is suitable and comfortable for a growing belly. Maternity swimwear is a must-have for those who prefer swimming, or who just want to relax in water to take the pressure off swollen joints.

Maternity Tops

Tops are the most versatile and useful maternity clothing items as they come in the largest variety of colours, styles and shapes that will keep you comfortable as your belly grows. These days, pregnancy wear is becoming much more trendy making it easier to find something that suits your style so you can look and feel great. Tops that every pregnant woman should have in her closet include the slouchy-style shirts that leave enough room for you to grow, cardigan tops that can be worn over any size of belly and a wrap that can be worn as loose or as tight as is desired.

Maternity Dresses

There is a lot that makes you uncomfortable when you are pregnant, and the clothes you wear shouldn’t be one of them. If it is the right season, maternity dresses are extremely useful to those who feel that the clothes they wear are restricting them. Additionally, wearing a dress eliminates the need for pants that can often pinch or dig uncomfortably into your lower belly. Dresses also come in many styles; so you can find a dress that will be suitable for any occasion from a summer picnic to a formal cocktail party.
